Anxious, exhausted, despondent, or any combination thereof today?

The Courier has something that will hopefully lift your spirits and the corners of your mouth this morning: excerpts from letters between two classic authors.

J.M. Barrie and Robert Louis Stevenson never met, but they formed a friendship through letters.

We’ve had Stevenson’s side for years, and recently, Michael Shaw — a lecturer at Scotland’s Stirling University — discovered Barrie’s correspondence, too.

The exchanges are now the basis of a book, A Friendship in Letters, from which Shaw has shared highlights in the Courier.

Barrie (Peter Pan) and Stevenson (Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) are among Scotland’s most famous authors.
